Great Picture Book Find w/ Printable

I recently stumbled upon a very interesting picture book called The Secret Knowledge of Grown-Ups by David Wisniewski:
The book takes the form of a Top Secret Handbook that shares the 'real' reasons behind all those grown-up rules. It's so much fun to read and the pictures are great! It's definitely worth checking out!!!

To follow up this story, I planned a writing assignment to go with it.  I plan to have my students think of a 'rule' that they constantly hear from grown-ups, and come up with an alternative and creative explanation for that rule. The worksheet below is formatted to match the format of the book.

Kids constantly complain about rules (at home and school), and I think they will have a lot of fun coming up with their own bizarre and funny ideas. Plus, it will make a great class book!!!
